In the News: Trump’s Former Lawyer Bought in Tribeca

••• Former Trump apparatchik Michael Cohen bought at 111 Murray, paying $6.7 million for a four-bedroom. The building “is being developed by a partnership of real estate companies Fisher Brothers, Witkoff and New Valley. New Valley is headed by Howard Lorber, a real estate developer and longtime friend of Mr. Trump. Steve Witkoff, the founder of Witkoff, is also a longtime friend of Mr. Trump. […] Mr. Cohen’s purchase is the only closing in the building thus far, according to public records. […] Mr. Cohen financed the purchase by securing a $3.5 million short-term mortgage from the developers, rather than getting financing from a bank, according to public records. While developers occasionally offer to finance purchases in their projects, such developer financing is unusual in Manhattan, real-estate attorneys say.” —Wall Street Journal
